If you see a message that says 'Google Chrome wants to record your screen', then don't panic. It is a standard notification when you're screen sharing with Google Chrome which is the browser Vowel is using.

If you are running macOS Catalina — version 10.15 or later — you must grant access to Screen Recording Permission in order to share your screen during a Vowel meeting. This is an Apple security setting and we, unfortunately, do not have control over this. You will only need to do this once.

How to enable

1. When prompted, "Open System Preferences"

2. If you do not see the dialog above or you are unable to screen share, manually open System Preferences, click the "Security and Privacy" icon, and then choose "Screen Recording" in the sidebar.

3. In the Screen Recording section, click the box next to Google Chrome to allow screen sharing. You may need to click the unlock icon in the bottom-left.

4. Next, click "Quit Now". You will not be able to screen share until you quit and restart Google Chrome.

5. Rejoin your meeting. You should now be able to screen share!
